The two teams clashed at Wembley this afternoon, with the Gunners starting brightly and almost taking the lead through new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but it wasn’t long before Aguero’s controversial opener.

City goalie Claudio Bravo lumped forward his side’s goal-kick, and rather than simply challenge to clear it, the German World Cup winner appealed for a foul – when Aguero really hadn’t fouled him at all.
When you’re playing against one of the best finishers in world football, you simply can’t take chances like that, and the segment of play has left supporters branding Mustafi as ’embarrassing’:
Mustafi is dog shit..utter dog shit…waste of space

What are the chances Mustafi tried to play him offside? Could actually happen at Arsenal ?

Arsenal surprised people have come to watch their kickabout. Mustafi off getting an ice cream and Monreal has gone home for tea. Village #bbcfootball

I genuinely think Mustafi forgot you can’t be offside from a goal kick lool. As a professional footballer

#mustafi Is one of the worst defenders I have ever seen with a price tag of £35 Million @MustafiOfficial Embarrassing defending!!! @ArsenalFanTV @ArsenalTerje @Arsenal @martinkeown5 @LeeDixon2 @thedavidseaman

To be fair, from an ex-Valencia player who has won the World Cup and cost £35 million, you’d probably expect a bit better, eh?
Could this be the final straw for Mustafi in North London?
